HBO’s The Last Of Us TV Series Will Launch In 2023February 18, 2022
There are some games whose storylines feel like they would be great as a TV series or even as a movie, and Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us is one of them. HBO recognized the potential and for those who are unfamiliar, back in 2020 it was announced that the game would be getting its own TV series on HBO.
Now, it has been about two years since the original announcement and for those who have been eagerly anticipating the release and hoping to see it this year, we have some bad news because it looks like it will only be arriving in 2023.
This is according to HBO and HBO Max Chief Content Officer Casey Bloys who told Deadline that the show was still being shot and that it will not air in 2022. Bloys suggested that it will most likely arrive in 2023, but even then the way he phrased it didn’t feel like a very concrete date.
According to Bloys, “It’s not going to air in 2022 — they are still shooting in Canada. I imagine you will see it in ’23,” He adds that based on what he’s seen so far, he is pretty excited for it. “I have seen some early episodes and I’m very excited. Craig did Chernobyl for us, he is a fantastic writer and director. What I’ve seen looks amazing, so I’m excited for it, but it will not be in ’22.”
